A 49-year-old Alliance man is behind bars following a Monday drug bust by the Alliance Police Department.
Russell Anders was arrested earlier today on charges of: Manufacturing of Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, and Possession of Marijuana (More than One Pound).
Police say they received a tip about a possible marijuana manufacturing operation, and APD officers and members from the WING Drug Task Force went to the home on South Potash.
A search of the home led to the discovery and seizure of more than three-and-a-half pounds of marijuana, and items consistent with a marijuana grow operation.
Anders was arrested and charged on the aforementioned charges, and will make his first appearance later this week in Box Butte County Court.
